The CSMVS Museum Art Conservation Centre (CSMVS MACC) is an intrinsic part of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) Mumbai, formerly known as The Prince of Wales Museum of Western India. CSMVS is a museum of national importance, with a collection of 60,000 historic and artistic works of various materials and technologies. It is a non govermental, not-for-profit organization established in 1909, under an act of legislation – Prince of Wales Museum Act (Act III of 1909) of the then Government of Bombay. It is governed by a Board of Trustees, to whom Mr. Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the present Director General of the CSMVS reports. Since its establishment and till today, it is supported by the projects it undertakes and from funds it raises through public support for its cultural and educational activities. 

CSMVS MACC, in its present form, is a four year old fledgling institution that is gradually being acknowledged nationwide as an upcoming premier facility for heritage conservation, research and training. The seed support for its establishment was provided by the Ministry of Culture Government of India and Sir Dorabji Tata Trust. Other institutions that have supported its conservation projects are the Media Art and Culture Division of Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, Bank of America Art Conservation Project and The Courtauld Institute of Art.
